4.0 out of 5 stars Hard to follow, Good Examples.
Mr Gundavaram has successfully included cool working examples in this book, but failed to explain them in plain, easy understandable words. There are times when I 'got lost' while reading this book. The book itself is highly informative as a reference, but if you're looking for a Perl tutorial, go somewhere else.

This review is from: CGI Programming on the World Wide Web: On the Spot Information (Nutshell Handbook) (Paperback)
The book is inaccurate, showing examples that do not work. Sample files from the book (downloadable) are neither documented well, nor functional. Treatment of Perl is based on a few scenarios that the author found useful, most likely they will not pertain to you. The author neither gives you the constructs, nor the framework for you to build on his knowledge and create solutions of your own. After purchasing and reading the book, I had to resolve my Perl needs by searching for code on the web and changing it to suit me. You can do much better with the free information available via your browser.
